Sunspots 19

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

If you use G-Mail, it may not be as private as you think it is, and the reason isn't because of Google--it has to do with RSS feeds. See here for a warning and a solution.

Written before the Internet, or blogging, but still relevant, perhaps:

"But why do only unimportant things?" asked Milo, who suddenly remembered how much time he spent each day doing them. "Think of all the trouble it saves," the man explained . . . "If you only do the easy and useless jobs, you'll never have to worry about the important ones which are so difficult. You just won't have the the time. For there's always something to do to keep you from what you really should be doing . . . ." Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth, p. 213. (New York: Random House, 1996, Special 35th Anniversary Edition)

A post on whether Snape is really evil or not, and a long web page by John Granger on Rowling's Half-Blood Prince release interviews.

I have finally placed a Flickr photo badge on my blog (scroll down). You can't see it if you are going to a particular post, just from the main blog. Thumbnail pictures, from my photos, randomly appear and disappear. Thanks, Brandy!

Joe Carter's post on the improbability of life having risen by chance, and the extensive discussion, generally well-mannered and thoughtful, following it, make for some thought-provoking reading.

The latest Christian Carnival is here. Be prepared to see a brown background!

Though I think that anyone who was going to read it should have hurried up and done so already.
